Love the decor and good food

This place has a magic all its own. It was great as Mary's kitchen and now the décor and atmosphere is even better as Bear's Eatery. Food selection was awesome and everything tasted great. Awesome place for family or friends to go for a meal and hangout.

We were in Kimberley for a weekend ski trip and everyone was starving after a full day on the hill. I Was a little sceptical as the building could use some updating but so glad I gave it a chance! Large menu made it hard to choose but I went with the chefs famous pot pie. Kids had the chicken... More

Took the family in during the AB family day weekend. We are locals and the Platzl was just too busy for us this weekend. So glad we decided to pop into Bears and try it out. (Haven't been in since it was Marys Kitchen). I had the fish n chips, it was cooked just right, the coleslaw was fantastic (... More

Comfort food like you wish your Momma made. Love the all day breakfast. The made on site deserts, pot pies and dinner specials have never disappointed.

The food was excellent and the service is great too. We both had pot pies and the crust was amazing! I wanted to order a second one to take home it was just so good! The dessert pies was great as well and I am looking forward to going back again :)

The food was great, and they have a wide variety of gluten free food, including most of the sandwiches. However, there may have been cross-contamination from other things, such as on the fries, as my wife did not feel well after eating there. She was the only one, and she is the only one who is Celiac. They also seem... More

The owner of this small eclectic cafe loves vinyl records and must have a bunch of them. Our waitress said she changes them out periodically. When we went they were 100% Christmas albums, many remembered fondly from my childhood. We felt welcomed by the staff person (it was a quiet afternoon) and she said their specialty is the pot pie/shepherd's... More

Tasty, wholesome and downright deliciously home cooked style meals. Some of the best eats around the Kootenay area. Don't miss out on a chance to dine here if you're in the neighborhood.
